Batch #2 and #3

The first batch was a sloppy failure. The beeswax solidified into a dense block and everything else was soupy. A quick google search revealed that much of what I added as insoluble with beeswax and provided insight to what would be soluble. The next two batches would be better

Adding coffee grounds was not the greatest of ideas... this was something I would not be comfortable rubbing on my legs. Tossed that in the garbage.

The third batch was much much better. It has a better consistency and a mild heat. I will need some additional oils for a colder weather embro, but I'm pretty happy with the preliminary results.

I guess I'll need a name for this batch...
